    An eyewitness, who identified himself simply as Fatal, told our correspondent that the Hiace bus was on top speed when it collided with the Volkswagen from the back which caused the Volkswagen bus to overrun the drainage pathway.

    Fatai said, “I was standing at the bus stop when I saw the collision between the two buses. The Hiace bus was coming at a top speed when it collided with this Volkswagen bus.

    “The collision was so hard that the Volkswagen bus overran the pathway on the drainage system. Many people were injured in the two busses.”

    An occupant of the yellow bus who did not want his name mentioned disclosed that he was shocked when the collision occurred which led to him sustaining injuries.

    He said, “I was in the yellow bus when I heard the sound of the collision with our vehicle from the back. We were three on the bus and I am the bus conductor. I, a passenger and the driver were on the bus when the accident happened. The third person jumped out of the vehicle and he sustained injuries on the head.

    “Policemen have taken him and others injured to the hospital. You can see that I sustained injuries in my hand. It was a shocking experience.”
